NOTE: Comics are coming out Thursday December 3rd
this week.

siegethecabal.gifsiegethecabal_2.gifthor604.gifSo it all comes down to this, the end of the Marvel epic storylines end here. Six years in the making Marvel says, the ‘Final’ story to straighten out the Marvel Universe once and for all…….again. Ahh promises, promises.  Let us all enjoy this Marvel train for now as we all await the next epic storyline next year shall we? Asgard will be front and center in the Marvel Universe as the Siege begins. Check out Siege: The Cabal for the start of a hostile takeover of Asgard. Thor/Asgard (and Norman) will be the main focal point here as Marvel really starts cramming Thor down our throats for the next year before his movie comes out, which is completely fine by the way. Thor is a total bad ass and it’s been a while since Thor has been the premiere player in the Marvel Universe. So Norm, stir some stuff up and make Thor real angry. It’s going to be fun watching you get your butt handed to you. Yes Norman you have made the grave mistake as Hitler did trying to invade Russia. You’ve underestimated your opponent. You will lose now. Why will you lose? The hero always wins that’s why.

Marvel has really put together the cosmos in a very quiet way almost. But, this week a return of a character named Sphinx comes in Nova #32. Find this villain first
appearance in Nova #6 from 1977 for only $8. Good buy here because the Marvel cosmos are a much/untouched unrated place as far as the back issue market goes. Iron Man #55, First Thanos $240? See, case in point.



hulkwinterguard1.gifincredhulk258_sovietsuper1st_1981.gifcap352_1stsupremesoviet.gifHulk will fall! Well not really, but Fall of The Hulks Alpha #1 will be kicking off some serious Hulk smash story. Hopefully, if there is a Marvel God the GREEN Hulk will be the last one standing (along with Skaar, we like his green Conan looking son!) and the Rulk and Red She Hulk will just finally go away. The Strawberry Hulk deal has to go away, it’s a silly premise
and Hulk as we know him to be is only the color Green and sometimes Grey. So the Fall of The Hulks will be the beginning of the end for this ridiculous
story of Red Hulk deal. So most of us can only hope it will be. If it is, then
this will be worth it. If not, then move along nothing to see here. Speaking of
Hulk, Hulk Winter Guard #1 answer’s DC’s Great Ten from a couple of weeks ago. DC’s super China team fared alright as far as sales go, so now Marvel comes at us with Winter Guard, Russia’s super team. If you feel like looking for the first appearance of this team, look for Incredible Hulk #258 for the first Soviet Super Soldiers then look for Captain America #352 for the first appearance of Supreme Soviet, put these 2 teams together and you have Winter Guard!

ironmanvswhiplash1.giftalesofsuspense97_firstwhiplash_150_1968.gifwhatifsecretinvasion1.gifIron Man vs. Whiplash #1 will be hitting theaters, er…..your local comic shop that is this Thursday. Did anyone demand to see this comic book made? Anyway, check out what’s probably going to be a good old fashion comic book brawl because these two have known each other for about 41 years. Back in the year 1968 these guys meant up in Tales of Suspense #97, it’s been a love fest ever since. So much so that now they’ll meet in the Iron Man 2 movie. Sticking with Marvel here, it seems to be a Marvel week huh? Pick up Dark Avengers annual #1 to see if Captain Marvel goes to the dark side or not, should be an interesting read. Also check out What If? Secret Invasion #1. This will not
only be a fun read, because who doesn’t like a good What If? story? This will also be a first for artist Pow Rodrix. He’s a new guy coming up and he’s only done a few comics for DC so far. A newcomer also writes a story in this book, Chris Acosta. So a cool What If? story with some newbie’s in it!


The new Superman: The World of New Krypton #10 will lead right into the series finale, which leads into, ready, sitting down, the next BIG event from DC next summer! When will the madness stop? And talk about madness, what is up with Frank Castle on the cover of a DC comic??? Isn’t that him on the cover of Mighty #11 with the letter ‘A’ on his chest instead of the skull? What’s up with bkwonderw1.gifthe lookalike DC?? The Blackest Night storyline marches onward and kicking major butt with Blackest Night The Flash #1 and Blackest Night Wonder Woman #1. Blackest Night has DC seeing nothing but green! 

Here are the IC Xtra’s this week………













See You Next Week, Invest Wisely.
